Bill Murray already has one Christmas classic in the bag with “Scrooged,” but can he knock out another? Well, he’s teaming with Sofia Coppola and pretty much every celebrity friend he’s ever made, for “A Very Murray Christmas,” which seems to be as much a holiday special as a gigantic Bill Murray love fest.
George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, the band Phoenix, Rashida Jones, Miley Cyrus, and more will appear in the Christmas treat that finds Bill Murray playing himself, as he worries that no one will show up to his TV show due to a terrible snow storm in New York City. Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at the Carlyle hotel to help him; dancing and singing in holiday spirit, in what will be an homage to old school variety shows.
Pour some eggnog and catch “A Very Murray Christmas” on Netflix on December 4th.
